- Jöns died young, and Marit's birthyear is wrong in the HFL.
If he did I can't find him (I went out 10 years after his birth). As
for her birth year being wrong, that's of course possible, but I
checked the birth records from 1778 (when Marit's mother first appears
with Marit's fathers family in HFL's) to 1800 for Marit and came up
with nothing for her nor any other kids than the ones previously
mentioned, so if anything she's just not there I guess.
- Jöns had other parents, and Marit's birthyear is wrong in the
- Sloppy record-keeping, so Marit is missing in the birth records.
Possible of course, I've been having trouble finding some others too
so either my reading of things is flawed (possible, although these
records are pretty clear) or there are others missing too from say
1765 - 1800ish.
- Marit was born in another parish where the parents, or at least
mother, lived temporarily, or just visited.
Is there a way I can check that? The HFL's don't show anyone coming
or going during that time and I don't know of anything else I can
You could look for other children, there is a considerable gap
1787 and 1797.
Checked 1778 to 1800 and came up with nothing but the few kids already known.
I think it's time I took a break from her and came back to it if
something else comes up. Otherwise I'm just looking at the same stuff
over and over and getting nowhere but frustrated.
Thanks Bo and Pono for you insights
